I just got back from Tanzania & I'm giddy. I sat down at my computer to check my neglected email accounts, and I just paused to take it all in. I couldn't stop smiling at the thought of reliable power, hot water, non-dirt floors, soap, and a comfortable bed.

Once again, I'm truely happy that I have a renewed sense of satisfaction & understanding for the posh lives we live as westerners. I don't want this feeling to go away, but it naturally will fade as I'm back home & I start to take these things for granted. That just means that I'll need to do another trip next year to renew my understanding & appreciation.

Even though it's -6F outside, I'm happy to be home for the holidays.
